A man who was fatally struck by an Amtrak train in Richmond on
Saturday afternoon has been identified by the Contra Costa County coroner's
office as 60-year-old Ralph Earl Price.
Price, a Richmond resident, was walking with a woman shortly
before 2 p.m. Saturday when he was struck on the tracks in the area of
Cutting and Carlson boulevards, Richmond police Lt. Andre Hill said.
Hill said Price was walking with a cane that might have gotten
stuck in the tracks in front of the train.
The woman walking with Price has not been identified and
investigators are urging her to come forward, Hill said.
The Amtrak train conductor and witnesses at the scene were
interviewed and the collision remains under investigation.
